It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

I had a list of 22 books to choose from and I read none of them. That's not to say I didn't get any reading done, just not the books I was thinking about reading before I started. The fun thing is that I read all new books this time and only one wasn't an adult level book :-D

edit: 1,100 pages seems to be about what I read for a read-a-thon so I think I did pretty good considering everything.

This is a midnight to midnight challenge, in what ever time zone you're in. It's very low key, just push yourself to read more than you might on another week.

There will be Twitter chats. Use the sign up links to visit others. Or don't ;-)

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, May 8th and runs through Sunday, May 14th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 19 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team


I've got a huge tbr pile and a backlog of books I need to review. I'm also hosting a party at the end of the month and my house (as usual) isn't ready. What's not usual, I'm still got a lot of my Mom's stuff in our family room so I've got to find a place for it (storage/family/donate) :-(

edit: to add books read
